Storyline

Driven by a heated passion. Haunted by an exotic and misty recurring nightmare. Obsessed with a beauty he can paint but not possess, a psychotic artist twists his inspiration into a deranged killing spree. At a country lake, the artist goes insane when his beautiful model will not keep still. In a maddened frenzy, he kills her with his spear gun. The murderous spree has begun. At a nearby mansion, the artist is hired as a handyman. But as his madness drives him further and further into his own nightmarish world, he lashes out again...and again...and again, creating a grotesque museum of victims in the walk-in freezer. But as the murderer prepares to kill his final victim a power failure occurs. His ghastly vision shatters into an even more terrifying reality. Playgirl Killer...paint it red for passion, red for rage, and red for his beautiful but bloodied victims. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

A Real Freak Fest
4 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This film is a really sick piece of work. The artist kills women just because they won't stay perfectly still for him and you feel no sympathy for any of them as most of them either come off as nymphos or just have bad attitudes. Only the third victim, the girl who answers an ad for a boarder, seems like a nice girl. Unfortunately, she is killed before you really get to know her. Also, just before the girl is killed she is conveniently taking off her clothes and is only in her bra and panties when she is killed.

It seems like the director had a real hatred for women and was just interested in showing them in various states of undress. No wonder people say that this is one of the worst films ever made and that the only time that it was ever shown was late at night when the kiddies were asleep.
